At All Japan Budogu, we have a full team of experienced and talented craftsmen who have the expertise and know-how to create a Bogu set to your exact sizes and specification. Not only will this Bogu set be made to fit you perfectly, it will also be made to your own personal design, giving you the chance to build your ideal Bogu set.
HYOU uses a Futon that is completely stitched using 'Ten-zashi' - a method of stitching that has almost disappeared in the production of modern Bogu. Rather, as it is quicker and easier to produce, the more common 'Nagazashi' is used in most modern Bogu sets. 'Nagazashi' compresses more air out of the Futon - making it less flexible, and less padded - and further it leaves more of the thread exposed, reducing durability. However, 'Ten-zashi' retains the air particles in the Futon, making it much more flexible and cushioned, and as less thread is exposed it also increases durability. Our craftsmen are amongst the last living masters who still have the expertise to stitch the Futon in this way - and now it is available WORLDWIDE!!!
Made to Order - Normally requires a production time of 12 to 16 weeks.

I purchased this set and have worn for about 2 months now. Compared to other vendors in the states, I would say this bogu set stands out most for its subtle yet distinguished appearance. The stitching itself is wonderfully done. Only thing that was slightly disappointing for me was that the Kote was not as stiff as I'd hoped. However, the set overall offers great protection with balance of comfort. And with all that said, the customer service was top notch and responded promptly and kindly to all my questions/adjustments. I plan to wear this set consistently for the next 5-10 years.
